Art and Design

Intent

At Templemoor we want to inspire, engage and challenge pupils by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment and create their own works of art. 

The National Curriculum for Art & Design aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences.

  • Become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques.

  • Evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design.

  • Know about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and

    cultural development of their art forms.

Implementation

In Key Stage 1 our school uses the National Curriculum in England for Art & Design as the basis for its curriculum planning. This has been developed into units providing progression and continuity of learning experiences across the 7 areas: Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Collage, Textiles, IT and 3D. Pupils will learn about great artists and use the work of artists as a stimulus to produce their own creative works.

Although sketchbooks are not a requirement at EYFS and Key Stage 1, as a school, all children from Reception through to Year 2 have their own sketchbook to record their ideas and experiences. This will follow them throughout the school as their own personal art journey.

Impact

Children will be equipped with knowledge and skills to participate in, experiment with, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. They will develop their ability to think critically and evaluate their work and the work of others.

Skills and Knowledge Organiser
 
Each Art unit is supported by a Knowledge Organiser which details the key facts, vocabulary and skills for each unit. This is sent home, allowing children to make a head start in their learning.
